WHERE ARE YOU BOTH FROM
Cristi was born in Toowoomba but has lived in Townsville for most of his life. Grace was born and lives in Townsville.
HOW DID YOU MEET?
Grace worked at Loloma during her uni degree and attended the Stockland Retail Awards night. Cristi plays for local band The Godfathers of Funk, who were the entertainment at the awards night. Grace and some of her Loloma teammates got to the stage and sang Mustang Sally. This is where Cristi and Grace first met.
WHERE WAS THE CEREMONY?
The remarkable Sacred Heart Cathedral, officiated by Father Dave Lancini, who has known both Cristi and Grace since they were children.
WHERE WAS THE RECEPTION?
Cristi and Grace wanted a view of the ocean for their reception and couldn’t go past the Pier Restaurant. It looked absolutely spectacular with fresh flowers, fairy lights and a cheese wheel wedding cake!
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST DANCE SONG?
How Would You Feel by Ed Sheeran as Cristi and Grace both love Ed! But the most important song of the night was the one Cristi sang to Grace — Perfect by Ed Sheeran. This was a complete surprise on the evening.
WHERE WAS YOUR HONEYMOON?
Cristi and Grace splurged and spent two weeks in Queenstown New Zealand and two weeks in Hawaii. They couldn’t decide between snow and fireplaces or sun and beaches so decided to do both.
